This small but well- equipped gymnasium offers a work-out area where blind clients receive specialized instruction and support and work out with other sightless people without feeling self-conscious or  a burden to others.

Health Clinic offers a broad array of services for the blind. There is physical and mental health consulting, a small but well stocked fitness center and a shop that sells devices for blind people to manage their health and life. 

It includes daily use items such as raised dial watches and talking calculators as well as health related items such as audio thermometers and talking blood sugar monitors and blood pressure testers. For many of the blind clients who this clinic serves, it is the only place where they can safely workout and offers products to support their health that they cannot find anywhere else.

Your support can keep the Health Clinic open. Your donations will be targeted to hiring trained instructors to teach health and wellness skills to blind clients. Your generous gifts also support the salaries of mental health staff that assist the blind with issues associated with the challenges of sightlessness.

2017 The Need Continues

After decades of slowly improving circumstances for the sightless in Greece, conditions for the blind have taken a drastic downturn as a result of the faltering economy of Greece. If you have ever considered helping to improve the lives of others less fortunate than you, now is the perfect time to act.
